Well, my husband surprised even me this morning and bought my son the Red Rider Gun (from the Christmas story). The kids opened up their gifts and he told me son he "saw" something by the entertainment center. Funny thing is the Christmas story is playing on the tv next to it (24 hour TBS marathon). I swear as soon as I saw the box I knew. My son (age 12) went over and opened it. He absolutely loved it. Of course it didn't actually work like the movie as my son dumped all the pellets on the floor. lol (whatever you call them ). They are outside now target shooting. God I hope neither of them shoots their eyes out.
Merry Christmas! I would go get some shooting glasses at Wal Mart for him to use when he is shooting. Also I would check with your local city and police dept about discharging the BB gun inside city limits. In some cities it is ok to discharge a BB or air gun within the city or county limits and other cities classify BB and air guns as real guns.
Below is what the City of Garland, Texas has in there books about a BB gun which can be fired within the city limits. You can go to your cities website and see if they have city ordnances and codes on line. If not call city hall or the police dept. Better be safe then sorry.
Sec. 26.05. Projecting of missiles prohibited.
(A) No person may discharge a firearm, rifle, shotgun, automatic rifle, revolver, pistol or other weapon designed for the purpose of firing or discharging a shell, missile or cartridge, whether the shell, missile or cartridge is blank or live ammunition, in any place in the City.

(3) The person was at a privately-owned shooting range which had been approved by the Building Official and the Fire Marshall of the City of Garland, and which was legally operating as a permitted use in accordance with the City of Garland Ordinance No. 3237;
(4) The person was using blank cartridges for a show or theatrical production, or for signal or ceremonial purposes in athletics or sports, or by a military organization;

My husband put his gun in his gun rack (all locked up). Rule is he can only use it when hes there. Not even me as I don't know a thing about guns in general. They are going target shooting tomorrow after I get back from my after christmas sales.
Good for you guys . DH and I are big on locked down guns even though we have a lot of them. He does not hunt but he loves target practice with both the kids. I don't mess with the guns at all except my bb gun to scare animals away lol ... that is all his thing. DD loves to shoot but she knows not to ask when he is not here.
